PHHS '17, Kean University '21
When I was first applying for colleges I knew that I wanted to live on campus. I also knew that I wanted a small school. I visited many schools hoping to find “the one” and I finally found that on Kean University’s campus. I just loved the way the campus looked. I took a tour of the dorms and I knew this was the school for me. As an only child, me living on campus was quite the transition and I will admit, it was not at all easy at first. The first night after moving in and meeting my roommates and suite mates, I felt homesick. I knew that I had to adjust to live with somebody and it was a very weird feeling. I eventually got used to it -- as I got busier in my classes and with my friends, the transition got smoother. I have now been living on campus for the past 3 years and I love it. I enjoy hanging out with my roommate and my friends. It is so much easier to live a balanced life between classes and other activities when living on campus because I don’t have to worry about not being able to take night classes or anything else.
Wishing the Class of 2020 a wonderful congrats and good luck to each one of them in their college journey!
